CIC125 Lilies of the Field

Welcome! I'm so glad you could stop by and check out my artwork.

Today I'm sharing a card inspired by this week's Cupcake Inspiration challenge.
Aren't those flowers gorgeous! I love flowers and while the season is rapidly winding down for my own flower beds I'm still enjoying a few blooms.

I love the colors on these cupcakes and while blog surfing I came upon this card by Laurie Jones that I really loved. A "light bulb" went off in my head right away I got out my Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set (SU) and set out to create my version of Laurie's card inspired by the colors and the lilies from the Cupcake Inspiration Photo.

So here it is...
I really love how it turned out and hope you do as well.

*Just a note: I made 3 masks of the lily and masked off while stamping the different colors.
